My solution was to add a blue binding to it to pull it together a bit more.
The color didn't show up the best here. It is a soft, hazy, denim blue.
I was determined to use what I had in my stash for the backing. I came up with a light blue gingham.
It is very lightweight, sort of a springtime quilt.
I am very glad it is finished because now I can go back to making x's!
I continued working on the Mary Eaton Sampler. Here is what I have so far:

The trick with doing freehand stitching is to try to keep it contained to the allotted area. It seems to grow quite easily. LOL!
